Any halfway competent medical technician could have told them that there was nothing seriously wrong with her-electrolytes out of kilter, histamine reaction, malnutrition, scurvy-but the only medical technician in the survey team had been Kilczer, who was dead. The autodoc was a military model.

Talk about Four Hundred Billion Stars

This was my first McAuley, and McAuley's first, and I found it quite enjoyable, if a bit overlong. The far furture 'spacescape' is well-imagined, the writing skilled, and the characters reasonably well developed. The pathway to the sequel is properly seeded, and I will likely read it at some point.
This was a very good read at first then it settled into its groove and continued on, actually go a bit boring at times then started to grab my attention again! all in all its a good story and I would recommend it whole heartedly!
I was almost finished reading this when I learned it was the authors first published novel. That may explain the problems with pacing, but still a great tale all in all.
Not good fiction, nor good science; mistaken ideas about epigenetics; reads like a poorly edited grad student's work. Overly fond of the word "flensed" and uses odd words that are so-seldom used that they are nearly archaic, but do not add any depth to the story. The characters are flat and dull. It became so boring that I found myself reading it while standing in a long line, too tired to focus or think, my eyes just needed something to do. There is so much wonderful stuff out there to read, this is not it.
This book was a huge letdown. I usually enjoy this author but here
The characters are caricatures of one-dimensional superficial cutouts, Who often make arbitrary and irrational decisions with unclear motivation
This guy is a smart and engaging writer. The plot dragged in a few parts, but overall hard to put down.
Different from the other works of his that I have read. Nuanced and doubtless challenging and enjoyable tone. I hope he does more in this vein.
I'm maybe a third in, and I may or may not finish. Other reviewers have mentioned McAuley's irritating writing tics, and his flat characters. He's got the nerdbucket's classic tone-deafness to the hu-mans, so everyone's a walking syndrome. Large organizations exist to crush the freedom of the creative individual, blahblahblah. All of this can be compensated for with intriguing concept and brisk pacing, and that may happen farther in, but so far it's been a whole lot of slow, dull, repetitive exposition in a generic sci-fi setting. If I do finish and the action does pick up, I'll come back and update.
